LIfe Book 2015 - Beacon of Light

I am loving Life Book 2915!  This is my take on one of the first lessons, done on sturdy watercolor paper.  Full of mixed media yumminess!

"You've Got A Friend"

I'm excited!  I am beginning to feel that I may actually have some modest, very modest, financial success at this art thing.  I finally started creating on canvas and other substrates, instead of only in my art journal.  This piece, titled "You've Got A Friend," is a mixed media/collage on 11 x 14 stretched canvas.  I posted it on my Facebook art page, J's Art Playground, and it sold in less than 2 hours!  I've also done some research and found a place to get my artwork professionally scanned so I can venture into giclees and note cards, etc.

Sombody Loves You

This is my first commissioned work.  It is 12 x 16 cradled wood.  I learned a lot creating this piece.  The client had several aspects he wanted in the painting as a Christmas present to his wife:  peacocks, her jewelry he had made for her, the tree he proposed under, and two sayings that held special meaning for them.  The entire notion was so romantic!  And suddenly, creating art became stressful because I wasn't creating just for me;  someone else had to love it as much as I did.  And that was scary.  End result - he loved it, and she loved it, and I sighed in relief.  I immediately told myself, "No more commissions!"  But given a few weeks distance, it was a really great feeling to create something so special for someone else and have them love it.  So, maybe I'll accept another commission, given the chance...
